Sound of Metal

Sunday • September 17 • 5:30pm
Sunday Movie Club at the Iowa Theater

The Sunday Movie Club was launched in September 2022 as a way to offer Iowa Theater patrons opportunities to watch recent, critically-acclaimed films that are slightly outside The Iowa’s usual mainstream fare. Members pay an annual fee of $75, which works out to $6.25 per movie, but anyone can attend the screenings by buying an $8 ticket. Doors open at 5 p.m., and the movie starts at 5:30.

This month’s club selection is “Sound of Metal,” the story of a heavy metal drummer whose life is turned upside down when he begins to lose his hearing and he must confront a future filled with silence. Sunday Movie Club screenings include a brief, optional discussion following the film.
